Katie's inspiration...

Katie's signature designs combine the opulence of faceted stones and precious metals with provocative surfaces and textures that mimic the spontaneity found in natural growth and oxidation processes.   Her  pieces reinterpret those objects that are observed but are not lasting, often reminding the wearer of places and times in  their own personal experience and travels.
